According to the advertisement, actress Dolores Del Rio commissioned the design of Olinala Ware from the “famed Vernon artist” Harry Bird. There were two different patterns, Olinala-Aztec and Montezuma-Aztec. The Montezuma pattern is similar, but has fewer decorative elements. Vernon produced both lines in four different colors: blue, green, yellow (orange) and rose on a gloss tan background. Both patterns are hard to find in any color, but the most prevalent seems to be Olinala-Aztec in blue. Vernon probably only produced these lines for a couple of years between 1937-1939. Company price lists indicates that a 22-piece set would have sold for $21.30, far more expensive than a standard dinnerware line due to the amount of handwork. A hand-decorated Olinala cup and saucer cost $1.50 and the same plain piece in Early California cost $0.40. Both dinnerware lines are well-marked with the Bird Pottery logo and pattern name.
